As GM Authority was the first to report and later confirmed by General Motors, the current-generation Chevy Trax is set for discontinuation after the 2022 model year, with production slated to end in the third quarter of the 2022 calendar year. In its stead, GM will launch an all-new generation, and now, GM Authority has learned when the next-gen Chevy Trax will be revealed.
According to sources familiar with the matter, GM Authority has learned that the all-new 2023 Chevy Trax will be revealed sometime this fall. To note, the first day of fall lands on Thursday, September 22nd.
The current-generation Chevy Trax was initially offered in 2013, later dropping into the U.S. market in 2015.
Moving forward, the all-new 2023 Chevy Trax will bear new front-end styling similar to the Chevy Tracker and Chevy Blazer. Under the hood, the new Trax will cradle a small-displacement engine with turbocharged aspiration. Front-wheel drive will be offered as standard, while all-wheel drive will be optional. Under the skin, the 2023 Chevy Trax will ride on a variant of the GM VSS-F platform.
Looking ahead, it would make sense for the 2023 Chevy Trax to be on the affordable side of the pricing spectrum, especially in light of the impending discontinuation of the Chevy Spark. Per previous GM Authority coverage, the Chevy Spark will be dropped from the U.S. market following the conclusion of the 2022 model year, with Chevy Spark production concluding at the GM Changwon plant in South Korea on August 31st. The final order cycle for the 2022 model was on June 16th. The South Korean facility was recently updated with a new paint shop and is slated to begin production of a new small crossover model.
Notably, the 2022 Chevy Spark LS starts at $14,595 with Destination Freight Charge (DFC), making it one of the least-expensive new cars on the market.
